AI WEIWEI SPEAKS FROM CHINA ON BEING BARRED FROM VISITING HIS BROOKLYN MUSEUM SHOW

April 18, 2014  |  Uncategorized

Persecuted Chinese artist Ai Weiwei's biggest ever solo exhibition opened today at the Brooklyn Museum. But prior to an 81-day detention by Chinese authorities in 2011, Ai's passport was confiscated, and he cannot travel to coordinate or even see his own exhibit. The Brooklyn show includes "Sacred," a depiction of his incarceration in six dioramas, in its first North American appearance.
National Geographic met and spoke with Ai in Beijing where he lives.
